Hispanic Culture Through Cinema

HISP 0710B S01 [CRN: 16762]

This course will examine eleven cinematic works of the contemporary Hispanic world (Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Spain, and the USA) from 1999 until 2012. We will focus on the cultural, thematic, technical and aesthetic aspects of the films, as well as on their socio-historical and political context. Every movie will be discussed in class integrating sociological, historical, political and aesthetic contexts, as well as a critical analysis of the film as artistic expression. This is a course also designed to improve students’ speaking abilities while learning about Hispanic cultures and cinema. FYS
